back to the clinton administration. just look at the scorecard and this is where the american people have to step up and understand what has happened and what we have to take on in terms of our accountability here. 134,000 iraqi civilians. not soldiers. 4500 of our own soldiers. 18 of soldiers who are veterans come back home are committing suicide on a daily basis. when you add the $2 trillion, we're talking about an extraordinary cost in human lives and resources and at the end of the day, we didn't have to do this and it wasn't effective. when you look at iraq now as a nation, it has not progressed in the way the liberators said it would progress. i hope the people open their eyes on this occasion to reflect very, very thoughtfully about what has occurred here and it's only doing the people of the united states who can make sure this never happens again. >> the justification on the other side has been look, saddam hussein was a monster. he was evil. getting rid of him was not a bad thing and if that was the ultimate consequence of the iraq war, then so much the better. what do you
gossifer hacked hillary clinton e-mail -- sorry, he hacked to another gentleman's e-mail account and sending e-mails to hillary clinton. hillary may have gotten information from benghazi. take a listen when jay carney was asked about it. i believe it was today. >> to your knowledge has president obama made any effort to meet with or speak with any of the benghazi survivors himself? >> we don't talk about specifics in terms of the president's visits to walter reid. >> or elsewhere? >> i don't have anything for you on that. i don't have the answer to that question. >> eric: asking carney about the allegedly 33 eyewitnesses, survivors of benghazi. your halts? >> greg: they keep saying we went to a republican president, coverup. when it's a democratic president, just shut up. where are the 33 survivors? these people were part of a horrible event. no one heard from them. >> eric: they have the film. >> bob: they have hidden it some place. >> dana: maybe the f.b.i. has interviewed them. it's strange that it has gone on this long. i understand why people are concerned about it. if you t
taxpayers. in 1990's president clinton worked with a republican congress to grow the economy and to restrain spending. in the 1990's, the balanced budget agreement actually resulted in a much faster balanced budget than anybody anticipated. balancing the budget was a major accomplishment for republicans in the 1990's, and also part of president clinton's legacy. i would hope that president obama would learn from that. the american people overwhelmingly support balancing our budgets. and the budget the senate democrats are considering never balances, ever. that means more debt, fewer jobs, and, frankly, much higher taxes from the american people. we certainly hope the president will change his mind and submit a plan that actually balances the budget. let's be clear, the democrats in this town who reject the goal of balancing the budget i think were out of step of where the american people are. the american people know you can't continue to spend money you don't have. i didn't come here for a fancy title or big office. i want to hand my kids and grandkids the same shot at the american dream th
be popular in israel. barack obama, to be candid, has not been popular in israel as compared to bill clinton and george bush. what this speech was about was trying to do in one hour what those politicians had done through engagement week after week, was to show the israelis that he understands intellectually, politically, he understands why they feel special about their country. to bring all that together, and as andrea said, this speech was designed to do all that. barack obama has shown in his career that these big set-piece speeches are his probably best tool as a president and as a political leader. if he can launch it, this will be the way to launch it. >> what is interesting, also, another aspect he brought was really an emotional connection. i was here with you. he's talking as a parent and reached out to israeli parents and said, were you to speak to some of these young palestinians i spoke with this morning, you would wish them well, you would wish them prosperity and peace. how much, jamie, do you think israeli and palestinian politicians can step outside of their role as politicia
is worried at all. they have something in hillary clinton and in the buildup of the clinton machine and then the obama machine. when those two things come together in 2016, the republicans have a really tough job. there is a reason that there has been nobody from the complete outside come in and run for president for either party. you to have a network and an organization. one of the best things i think that dr. ben carson can do, if he is seriously considering this, is to enjoy a little bit of spotlight now. not every tv show right now. find some people that can advise you and go out to the cabin in the woods for three months and think. get four stages deep in the question. the problem with the republicans is they fall in and out of love with people in if hours. nobody can have any staying power. now we don't like rand paul because he his policy on immigration is bad. they get all thrown up in the air. >> eric: greg? >> greg: yeah. okay. i want to go through the -- these are all the recent targets, by what i call the new white racist, gawker and daily coast and whatever. ben carson

shows former florida governor jeb bush losing in a 2016 matchup with hillary clinton in his home state. hillary beating jeb in florida. that's amazing. and there's more. marco rubio, the republican's break-out star of the year, loses to hillary, too. he's trailing by 11 points. both would get pounced on their home turf. this is the political fallout. it rubs off on their candidates. joining me now is ed rendell, former pennsylvania governor, and susan milligan, thank you both for your time. >> absolutely. >> my pleasure. >> ed, hillary clinton beats both jeb bush and marco rubio in their home state? is it panic time for the republicans? >> sure. because she just didn't beat him in a poll last month. she beat him by two or three points. now she's beating him by 11 points. and these are the two florida superstars. and worse, marco rubio has fallen down to 21. that's happened in a short period of time. they both waffled on path to citizenship and, again, it's part of the gun stuff and part of the whole negativity of the republican party and this party's go the to understand, it's not the

the bold move with president clinton at camp david in the summer of 2000 we got the second antifattah and buses blowing up in the hearts of jerusalem and tel aviv and all of our major cities. over a thousand israelis killed. and as a result of a security situation that emnated from a poorly implemented peace process. now, i think israelis feel that we have to be past the arafat era and be in a new era of mutual recognition and real security and that is why prime minister netanyahu as he tries to make peace with the palestinians and the rest of the arab world will insist that any agreement we reach must be based on firm security grounds. >> mike: there appeared to be a thawing of what obviously had been a frosty relationship between the president and prime minister netanyahu. all of that is well and good anda you hope to see a warmer and more cordial relationship. the real question, do the israelis feel more confident that the united states will step in and do anything necessary to keep iran from having nuclear weapons? >> that is an excellent question, governor. because in our private
president bill clinton, as the president who signed the act into law, i have come to believe that doma is not accurate. i have asked jeffrey toobin to explain this. >> all we can say is that president clinton believes it was a mistake and whatever justification he had in 1996 was not good enough, and he, like virtually the entire democratic party now, repudiates it and they want to see it overturned. >> this is not a thumb's up or thumb's down decision, right? this is the supreme court, and so what are we looking at here? >> well, this is a bit of a rubik's cube, and both the defense of marriage act case and the challenge to proposition 8, the case that the law that bans same-sex marriage in california. the defense of marriage act case refers to the federal law that says that the federal government will not recognize same-sex marriages even in states where it is legal. so people, and gay people who are married in new york and new england and all of the states where it is legal, they cannot file joint tax return, and they can't get social security survivor's benefits and if the court up
to hillary clinton for president. mersaides and richard, welcome to both of you. americans are sick of this. look at the debt clock this. thing keeps whizzing up. the debt is mounting. every sunday, i show this. it has gone up another trillions, it seems, theres and multi-millions. mercedes, how do we stop that in its tracks and make it go the other way? >> we can't stop it when you have the budget plan that senator murray has pushed through. 50 of all, because it has such little support from american voters. for example, we saw a poll saying that only 28% of likely voters supported the senator murray plan. the majority of americans do believe that we need to cut the dev silt by $5 trillion, need to balance the budget and cut spending with no need for raising taxes to get the economy going and this is the way we ensure that our recovery -- we could really have an economic recovery, not by the budget which has been passed, which is the budget to nowhere. >> if the americans want it. how come the politicians are not doing it? mercedes? >> the reason is obviously, even when you look at senator
heard him say this about former presidents. former president clinton founded the clinton global initiative. jimmy carter got involved in habitat for humanity. all the former presidents, including his father, got involved in raising money for haiti. he's going into painting? little difference in your post-presidential interests in life, wouldn't you say, victoria? nothing wrong with painting but most former presidents seem to have some broader, more global, more humanitarian interests. >> you're absolutely right, reverend. but what i'm detecting here is laying low. let's not forget when president george w. bush left office, he left office with a 36% approval rating. a couple months before that he was at 25% approval rating. so he's just laying low, either for his own good that he wanted to get out of the public eye or his brother might even be asking him to keep out of the public eye. this new emphasis on painting, good for him, paint on. but let's go beyond that, as you said, let's try to remedy what you did in the decade before. >> but behind every dark cloud there is a silver
clinton endorsed gay marriage. >> lbgt americans are our colleagues, our teachers our soldiers, our friends our loved ones, and they are full and equal citizens and deserve the rights of citizenship. that includes marriage. >> michael: great stuff. totally great stuff. progress always great to watch, but to be fair it's not exactly risky that position puts her squarely among the majority. support for gay marriage has reached an all-time high according to a new poll that is out today. it is nearly double what it was in 2004. but at cpac the republican bases show how out of step it is on that issue. they attacked rod portman for backing gay marriage after his own son came out. >> just because something like that hits home, i don't know why you change your beliefs. i mean that's what bothers me. his belief is very easily changed just because his son is gay. i don't get that. >> reporter: he came out in favor of same-sex marriage. what is your reaction to that? >> horrible. that's his fault. and he gets no sympathy from me. >> quit being so selfish as to think only abou
with what you're talking about? >> oh absolutely. 's terrific lawyer. we worked together in the clinton administration. he really understands these issues. i think that you're going to see a very forceful advocate, and someone who is very knowledgeable and can really help the administration navigate in the coming months the negotiations on this issue of immigration reform. >> michael: and do you think then that we will see comprehensive immigration reform this year? >> you know, i have been working on this issue for over ten years, even when i was in the white house, you know, 13, 14 years ago. so i am cautiously optimistic, but the real--i actually saw what i guess boehner said something today about the secret committee in the house that is also very close to negotiating something, the bipartisan group. that is the first sign of that i've seen. it will be the house republicans who are worried about tea party challenges, challenges from the right. they will be the obstacle. if there can be movement in the house, then yes i'm cautiously optimistic. >> michael: but there we go again. if t
to the clinton era, if hillary chooses to run? when does that shift take place? >> as a president goes through a second term, interest in the president starts to go to the congressional wing of the party. what obama is trying to achieve for his legacy does not necessarily line up with what congressional democrats are interested in, in making a clear distinction between who they are and republicans. i want to reinforce democrats are not in as bad as a shape as republicans. the democrats really are not attached to obama like republicans were to reagan. when obama ran, he ran against the establishment of a party. he did not have a "democrat" on his bumper sticker. his identity was to be separate from washington. he did not campaign for democrats. his appeal is less transferable for democrats going forward than they did for a type of person who had been elected like bill clinton. >> that is what becomes a case in the democratic party? -- who becomes the face of the democratic party? >> you guys did a great job. jimmy carter was president four years, but you made him the president of the democratic
that is to have the kind of balance that we had, frankly, at the end of president clinton's two terms in office where you had a balance between the investment of the revenues you're putting into the system and, secondly, that you had the spending levels which we have to bring down to get to that level. so that kind of balance is the only way to go. we have to do two things very well, create jobs and move the economy forward, that's first. that's first priority. and, second, make agreements that will lead to spending cuts over the next ten years and have those cuts go into effect in a couple of years, not right away. that's why we deal with the sequestration in our budget so we can take that, reverse that, and not have the adverse impact that we're already beginning to see. >> senator bob casey, improse sif, sir, given your all-nighter. i applaud you. really good. i don't know how you could stay awake and sound great and make good sense so thank you so much. >>> frustration and anger in chicago after the city announces plans to close more than 50 public schools. principals, teachers, families al

. priceline savings without the bidding. . >>> hillary clinton says she now supports same-sex marriage. what's going on? >> hi, wolf. clinton made the announcement in a video produced by the prominent group, the human rights campaign. take a listen. >> marriage, after all, is a fundamental building block of our society, a great joy, and, yes, a great responsibility. a few years ago, bill and i celebrated as our own daughter married the love of her life. and i wish every parent that same joy. to deny the opportunity to any of our daughters and sons solely on the basis of who they are and who they love is to deny them the chance to live up to their own god-given potential. >> clinton avoided taking political positions as secretary of state, but says her time traveling the world, quote, inspired and challenged her to think about the values america represents. clinton stopped short of endorsing same-sex marriage during her 2008 presidential run. the same position of then-senator barack obama. public opinion has definitely shifted. a brand-new cnn poll shows 53% of the public says marriages betwe
of staff to former president clinton said, this is the most predictable financial crisis in the history of the country that's looming. and this was several years ago. and nothing has gotten better since then. wii juswe just careen closer anr to the tipping point. senator gregg noted that mandatory spending is a primary -- unfortunately, all of the measures put in place have ignored smart entitlement reforms to control spending over the long term and comprehensive tax reforms to make the tax code more ta efficient. we all heard that before from people all across the political speck tom, republicans and democrats, liberals and conservatives. there is a growing consensus that all of these elements must be addressed. douglas holtz-eakin, former director of the congressional budget office noted that the level and projected growth of federal debt are is a threat to future prosperity. the nation, he said, despite claims to the contrary, remains on a damaging debt pathway. dr. holtz-eakin countered arguments that reducing the debt is not urgent because the crisis is a distant threat by pointing

.5 trillion in new revenue and to cover that price tag, president clinton revealed the hard truth. i'll quote president bill clinton. "they'll have to eliminate so many deductions like the ones for home mortgages and charitable giving, that middle-class families will see their tax bills go up. that's the promise of the ryan republican budget. million-dollar-class families will see their taxes bills go up. we don't. we take 7% out of that which means we can focus on the corporate tax spending, on the high-end deductions, the carried interest exception. so we don't have to go officer a the middle class tax cuts. let me close by reading one thing if i may have consent. we have just welcomed a new pope. the conference of catholic bishops had this to say about the ryan budget last year. congress faces a difficult task to balance needs and resources and allocate burdens and sacrifices. just solutions however must require shared sacrifice by all, including raising adequate revenues, eliminating unnecessary military and other spending and fairly addressing the long-term costs of health insurance and

[laughter] but the men are changing now, i think for the most part tend to look at their female colleagues as just colleagues in the senate. uma: and we're seeing more women in governorships, and that's making a big difference in states across the country. >> yeah. especially strong conservative female governors like nikki haley and susana martinez in new mexico, they're making big strides within the conserva

.com. richard, you were in the white house during the clinton years. there seemed to be a lot of progress between israel and the palestinians in terms of peace. not nearly the progress we're seeing now in the president obama administration. >> this is something that president clinton really focused on. a lot of progress was made. we saw in president obama's first term a reluctance to dive into this. maybe because he couldn't find a solution. he left most of this to secretary of state hillary clinton. now i think this trip is to sort of shore up and do some of the things he couldn't get done in that first term and show israel we are really there for him. it's been a successful trip so far for him. >> you have spent a lot of time in the region. what's the significance of john kerry being there before the president and staying there after the president leaves. >> i think it shows this is more than just a photo-op. the white house is trying to downplay expectations but at the same time, they're laying the groundwork for greater involvement and more discussions. we will see if the secretary of
to the clinton model. the carter model being a very icy u.s. view of israel. the clinton model saying let's hug each other close. he started offer the speech by talking about his friend, bb, using not even his first name, his nickname talking about their good relationship, emphasizing the security side of the relationship which institutional lee at least has been very strong and trying to mend the fences that he really broke in the first four years. then he got to the peace process part of the speech which was a different story. jenna: is that move from the carter to the clinton model a good thing for the american people? >> it's a good thing because it signals an improvement in relationship. it's a smart thing politically both in the united states and israel. the question of how obama felt or feels about israel has been a live political question in both countries, and here to have this kind of engagement with young israeli students is a way of trying to reach out to say, look i'm not an unfriendly president, i really mean when i say -- it's in the a cliche that when i talk about having your ba

the country's tried to take, the government's tried to take a big step forward, under the clinton administration and then under the first year of the obama administration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back h

, of course, was hillary clinton announcing her support for same-sex marriage in a human rights campaign ad. this formal endorsement comes as a new abc news/"washington post" poll finds a record 58% of americans now favor the legalization of same-sex marriage. and while the republican party takes a long, hard look at their fail wrure to be more inclusive minorities, it seems their oversimplified solution can be found in a single line in today's gop autopsy report.
